Americans voted against the Democrat-encouraged culture of violence and corruption.
The Perpetrators reacted with more widespread violent protest.
These people should get honest jobs and contribute.
A sampling of many news stories, this one from foxNews
“Anti-Trump demonstrations erupted across the U.S. for the second straight night. From Portland to Chicago to New York and parts in between drew a couple hundred people.
In New York City, a large group of demonstrators once again gathered outside Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue Thursday night. They chanted angry slogans and waved banners baring anti-Trump messages.
“You got everything straight up and down the line,” demonstrator David Thomas said. “You got climate change, you got the Iran deal. You got gay rights, you got mass deportations. Just everything, straight up and down the line, the guy is wrong on every issue.”
In Denver, protesters managed to shut down Interstate 25 near downtown Denver briefly Thursday night.
Denver police tweeted around 10 p.m. that demonstrators made their way onto the freeway and traffic was halted in the northbound and southbound lanes. Police say the interstate was reopened about half an hour later as the crowd moved back downtown.
Earlier protests in Denver, Boulder and Colorado Springs on Wednesday and Thursday went off peacefully.
In San Francisco’s downtown, high-spirited high school students marched through, chanting “not my president” and holding signs urging a Donald Trump eviction. They waved rainbow banners and Mexican flags, as bystanders in the heavily Democratic city high-fived the marchers from the sidelines.
Hundreds of protesters demonstrated outside Trump Tower in Chicago and a growing group was getting into some shoving matches with police in Oakland, California.
Another protest was building in Los Angeles, where 28 people were arrested Wednesday for blocking traffic during a demonstration that also saw vandalism to some buildings and a news truck.
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, a Democrat, condemned what he called a “very, very small group of people” that caused problems in that demonstration but said he was proud of the thousands more that peacefully protested.
“I actually thought it was a beautiful expression of democracy. I think it was a marvelous thing to see the next generation of this country get engaged and involved,” he said at a news conference, adding that at one time in his life he might have joined them.
President-elect Trump reacted for the first time to the protests on Thursday.
“Just had a very open and successful presidential election. Now professional protesters, incited by the media, are protesting. Very unfair!”
As expected, the demonstrations prompted some social media blowback from Trump supporters accusing protesters of sour grapes or worse, though there were no significant counter-protests.
Trump supporters said the protesters were not respecting the democratic process.

Despite measures such as mass pardoning of felons with instructions to vote Democrat. Mass registration of questionably documented “immigrants”, wide-spread attempted election fraud, violence against Trump supporters, Americans voted convincingly for a restoration of law and order and vetting of “immigrants” to restrict the invasion of jihadis and other trouble makers.
“Every system does what it was designed to do.” Obamacare was designed to fail and force us into full government control. If we don’t stop it.
Highlights from the New York Post:
Insured through work? imposes new taxes ,penalties and regulations that make this impossibly expensive
Working part-time? Hundreds of thousands of workers have had their hours cut to avoid employer participation.
Job-hunting? ObamaCare dampens the job market. employers are eliminating jobs to get below 50 employees and avoid the mandates.
Sixty-five or older? ObamaCare awards bonus points to hospitals that spend the least per senior. “Death Panels” make seniors wat too long and they die.
A physician? plan on typing redundant info into your computer instead of discussing with your patients.
Refusenik? If you’re uninsured and refuse to buy ObamaCare, the average penalty is $995 per adult, $500 per child.”
Clinton promises to expand this disaster. Trump promises to repeal and replace with free choice market solutions.
It would be best for Obama if this was dumped under the rug.
President pushes ObamaCare despite double-digit rate hikes
“Despite rate and deductible increases, President Obama on Thursday defended his namesake health care program and said millions of Americans “now know the financial security of health insurance” because of the Affordable Care Act.
His remarks came as ObamaCare sticker shock is getting even worse in some parts of the country, as more and more states are approving soaring rate increases for next year- with one Arizona town seeing a 75 percent hike and another in Minnesota seeing a 190 percent increase in deductibles over the course of four years.
“It’s absolutely unaffordable,” Minnesota Republican House Speaker Kurt Daudt told FoxNews.com. “I don’t even consider that health coverage.”
With some families forced to shell out $2,000 a month for insurance that comes with a whopping $13,000 deductible, Daudt said for some the only option is to pull their coverage and pay a fee for not having insurance, which in 2016 came out to $695 per adult and $347.50 per child (up to a maximum of $2085.)
“It’s catastrophic,” Daudt said, adding that he’s talked to Minnesotans who are being forced to financially drop their coverage, pay the fine and save money on the side for medical emergencies.
However Obama, speaking in Miami, maintained “It’s worked,” but admitted the program wasn’t perfect. “No law is.”
Obama was in south Florida to trump up support for the ACA before the Nov. 1 start of the enrollment period.
Problems with rising premiums in many parts of the country as well as major insurers calling it quits have left consumers with few or in some cases no choices next year.
The hikes are fueling criticism of the law, though the White House is now openly pushing the possibility of a public option.+
“Before last month, 13% of inmates receiving clemency had used a firearm in the offense,” the article states. “For those granted presidential mercy last month, it was 22%.” In other words, nearly one in four prisoners who will gain early release by presidential decree used a firearm to commit the offense for which the person was imprisoned….
Opinions can reasonably differ on the need for sentencing and criminal justice reform. What galls gun owners, however, is that retroactive leniency is being given to convicts who deliberately used guns to commit street crime, at the very same time members of the president’s party – particularly Hillary Clinton – are calling for retroactive condemnation of gun owners who have done nothing wrong.

President Barack Obama has been one of the catalysts in the nation’s slide from mere racial divisions to reflexive, pointless, unchecked rioting, talk show host Rush Limbaugh said Wednesday.
As he commented upon the devastating violence in Charlotte, N.C. after the shooting of a black man by a black police officer, Limbaugh noted that in Obama’s second term, and largely as a result of his actions, “rioting is almost expected now when there is a cop shooting.”
